Jeffery Gibson has played multiple sports throughout his life including soccer, volleyball and swimming, but track & field is his favorite because he does so well and it has provided him with many opportunities. Track and Field has allowed Gibson to travel to many different countries and gave him a scholarship for a college education. Gibson broke the 30 year standing Bahamian National Record in the 400mH at the NCAA Championships in 2013 finishing 5th overall.
Gibson attended Oral Roberts University where he received a track and field scholarship after graduating from Bishop Michael Elden High School. 2012 was a very successful year for Gibson as he was winning in both the 400m and 400mH at multiple championships. In 2012, Gibson was the Southland Indoor Champion in the 400m and the Southland Outdoor Champion in the 400mH.
Gibson took home 3 medals at the 2012 NACAC U-23 Championships, one of each color. Gibson won the gold in the 400mH, silver in the 4x400m Relay and bronze in the 400m. Gibson claims this is one of his biggest successes because of how far he came from the previous NACAC meet in 2010. Gibson went from being ranked last in 2010 to a Gold Medalist in 2012.
In 2012, Gibson also competed at the Olympic Trials and was a finalist, very close to making the 2012 Olympic Team. In 2013, Gibson made his first Senior World Championships Team and traveled to Moscow, Russia.
In 2014, Gibson made it to the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow and proudly took home a bronze medal in the 400mH. With a great start to his professional career, Gibson is setting his sights on the future 2015 World Championships and 2016 Olympic Games in Rio.
